Paper Pumpkin – Day by Day kit

Happy New Year!  I’m back today with an alternative for the December 2018 Paper Pumpkin kit.  I really wanted to have the year on each of the months and a picture that went with them so here is what I came up with.  (My craft table is a mess right now, you will see why when you see how many stamp sets I used.)

I used the retired Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper on a piece of chipboard I saved from the kit.  I ALWAYS save my chipboard, you never know when you will need it.  The rings are 1/2″ book rings and I used my Crop-a-dile to punch the holes in the chipboard.  I cut the chipboard on my guillotine style cutter after adding the DSP (apparently I need to clean the blade to get a sharper cut).  The banner for each year is from Pick A Pennant and done using the Stamparatus.

The chipboard is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ front and back.  The base is 4″ x 4 1/4″ scored at 1″, 2″, & 3″ then folded as above.  I attached the chipboard using Beacon 3 in 1 glue.

Little Elephant

 

Here is the second card from my last class. I just love those little elephants, they are so cute.  We only used one on the card this time.  I don’t know who made my inspiration card but I’ve seen this style once or twice before.
